A Knesset committee is seeking legal backing to deport Russian-speaking neo-Nazis living in Israel. The Immigration and Absorption Committee met Tuesday to address reports of neo-Nazi activity among small groups of non-Jewish immigrants, The Jerusalem Post reported. Israeli police are looking into two such immigrants, nabbed conducting neo-Nazi rituals while serving in the Israeli Army. One witness told the committee that such activity — which one legislator called “isolated and marginal”– was not limited to young people, and that some adults in Israel run neo-Nazi Web sites, the Post said.
